3 HBCU Nursing Programs Ranked in Top 15 in Eastern Region

083115_NurseThree historically Black colleges and universities have had their nursing programs ranked among the top 15 in the Eastern region of the United States.

Fayetteville State University’s program was ranked second, Winston-Salem State University’s program was ranked eighth and North Carolina Central University’s was ranked 13th by the Nurse Journal. Fayetteville State was narrowly edged out of the top spot in the region by Georgia Regents University.

The Nurse Journal, which bills itself as a social community for nurses worldwide, evaluated 1,189 schools and rated them based on quality (exam rate passage, accreditation and graduation rate), affordability (cost of tuition and financial aid availability), convenience (distance education availability), satisfaction (retention rate and professor ratings) and value (potential salary figures compared to cost of enrollment).

“It is a great honor to be recognized amongst our peers in the nursing community,” said Dr. Wanda Lawrence, chair of the NCCU Department of Nursing. “NCCU strives to continuously provide quality education for students and to prepare them for Eagle Excellence in their careers.”
